G just got to test what in his opinion the best thing ever.
It is a kit to dig for bugs. I am not a fan of bugs at all but these were real bugs encased in plastic so that made them ok. This kit is only $11.99 from Amazon here.
The kit comes with everything you need and more. Included in the kit is the big bug which you dig apart to find the little bugs, tools, and a magnifying glass. It even comes with an adventure guide and a activity booklet.
It has this cute display for your bug too.
We laid out some newspaper on the old coffee table in the basement and G got right to work.
He started with the bugs belly.
It didn't take him long to find his first bug.
He didn't want to scratch it so he used the brush to get it out.
Look mom a bug!!!
After finding all 3 bugs there wasn't much left of his big green bug.
The bugs are rinsed off and ready to inspect with the magnifying glass. Thats when we ran into a problem.
This is a pic of a girl from the advertisement for other products in the box.
Here she is through the magnifying glass included in the kit. It was warped and useless.
Don't get me wrong this is still a great kit and he had so much fun doing it so it is still worth the $11.99. I just wanted to warn you of potential problems before you find them yourself.
We had one from another kit which he used to check them out so it really wasn't a big deal.
G has now asked for some of the other kits for his birthday. Next he wants the dinosaur one lol.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
